These reports focus on specific health and social care issues. Some include accounts of public events organised by Healthwatch Southend, along with details of any follow-up work we have carried out and any fresh information we have gathered.

In this section you will also find accounts of meetings we attended where information was made available, or discussions took place, that we believe would be of interest to the public.

Healthwatch Southend reports provide a snapshot of local health and social care at a particular point in time. Following publication we continue to monitor these issues and where there are further developments, or where new information becomes available, we will write follow up reports.
